We were just at Anita's last week on11/10 and the restaurant was full. We still had excellent service, including a visit by Anita herself to make certain we were satisfied with our entrees. The chips were fresh, the cilantro in the salsa is special, but we LOVE the jalapeño bean dip! A variety of entrees were ordered and loved, my... More

If you have high expectations for good, moderately priced food, dine at Anita's. Their salsa is fresh made and comes mild or hot. But for extra hot sauce, ask for their special sauce made on site. Sweet after effect after the burn dies down. Carnitas is my all time favorite dish followed by the shredded beef flautas. Black beans cooked... More

Can't take anything away from Anita's, but since moving back to Simpsonville last year, we discovered Papas and Beer and are hooked. Being able to walk there is a factor as well, but having been to Mexico a couple of times, P&B feels more authentic.

Very disappointed in the quality and service. Nothing authentic about the food and the price was too high for what we received. Will not be going back.

Anita's used to be our favorite restaurant when we lived in Simpsonville some 16 yrs ago. This is our first visit since then and sadly, Anita's has gone down hill. I ordered the fajitas and they were served to me cold (they weren't served in a hot skillet as most places do); the tomatoes were overripe; the re-fried beans had... More

The service was kind of slow and not that great. The food somewhat bland but they only use fresh ingredients. Very healthy but no seasoning. I don't think I will come back but I am glad that I tried it.

This food is bland and boring. Skip this place and try Papa's and Beer. Papa's is closed on Mondays. If it happens to be Monday and you're thinking "Anita's is open..." try El Tejano. El Tejano is cheap Mexican fast food but it's tasty.

Always a wonderful Mexican meal, and the chicken tamales are fantastic. Service is always good, and the prices are reasonable.

Small and quaint with good Mexican food. We went here after our first choice was found to be closed on Mondays. The grilled Veggie salad was very good and so was their chicken soup. The portions are good size.
